(2005 model shown)




The mid-size Colorado pickup continues relatively unchanged for 2006 as a boldly styled alternative to smaller compact models and unwieldy full-size trucks. It shares platforms and components with both the GMC Canyon pickup and the HUMMER H3 SUV. Power comes from either a fairly lackluster standard 175-horsepower 2.8-liter four-cylinder engine or an available 220-horsepower 3.5-liter five-cylinder version. While both include electronic throttle control and coil-on-plug ignition to help maximize fuel economy, the truck offers neither a V-6 nor V-8 powerplant, which tends to limit its utility, especially for serious towing or hauling. The truck is available in either rear- or four-wheel drive, in short-wheelbase regular-cab and long-wheelbase extended- and four-door crew-cab versions. Three different suspension packages are offered, along with a long list of options that allows for maximum customization. An "Xtreme" appearance package, newly added last year, includes unique styling cues, a lowered stance, and exclusive wheels. New for 2006 is a Sun and Sound package, available for LT models, that includes a six-disc in-dash CD stereo and a power sunroof.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
